So many child behavior and parenting problems simply vanish, once we understand a few basics. Children are not small adults, and should not be expected to respond the way adults do. Children, like everyone else, respond beautifully to praise, love and reward. By contrast, punishment creates only resentment and the motivation to not get caught. All the particulars flow from these simple truths. Even the most defiant and disrespectful children can quickly come around, if we simply pay a little more attention to connecting praise and rewards to desirable behavior, and withholding them for unwanted behavior.

GRIT Kids exists to allow parents or caregivers to aid their children in the work of self-awareness—at every developmental stage— to better understand themselves and the world around them. Simple behavioral management fails to develop the internal locus of control that is necessary for developing character and self-discipline. Forming a self-identity and learning to live with purpose is a necessary life skill for children to learn in order to live into their fullest self. GRIT Kids Coaches are trained to help you do the work of raising your child with intention so you can see that little person grow into all they are capable of.

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Available for Online Therapy

With over 10 years of experience working with children and teens, I've learned how to make them feel understood and empowered to make good choices for themselves. Although different from the problems grown-ups might experience, children and teens still experience BIG emotions and deal with real problems that they need help with. Therapy can help your teen express themselves in a positive way through healthy coping skills. I will provide empathy and validation and provide practical tools for dealing with their mental health issues. With teens, I love to incorporate play and art therapy and creative outlets that work for them.
